If you’re a big Cath Kidston fan like me, then you will absolutely love their pretty products, but not like the price tag quite as much! I find that Cath Kidston stuff can be a little pricey, but if you’re not too far away from their Factory Shop in St Neots (Cambridgeshire), then you can pick up some bargains! I believe there’s also outlet stores at Bicester Village, Ashford, Cheshire Oaks, Gloucester Quays, and Gunwharf Quays, although I’m not sure if they just sell end of line and clearance stock. Whereas the Factory Shop in St Neots (attached to their…

I chose not to go into the city centre shopping mall and instead I visited a few edge of town retail parks around Milton Keynes which were much nicer and quieter!  So yes… I am one of those people that goes out sale shopping on Boxing Day! And I don’t regret it at all. I didn’t get there until after 10am so I wasn’t one…

Autumn is probably my favourite time of year for fashion! I can finally say goodbye to my razor and hello to a cosy pair of tights, and I love nothing more than a good pair of ankle boots instead of flat sandals and bare feet.  Ocean credit cards have asked me to select some of my favourite new seasonal fashion picks for autumn and I’ve found a few great buys on the high street. This is basically my autumn style everyday outfit recently.  I love A-line button up skirts and this corduroy one from Primark is perfect for the chillier…
